769 Possible Causes for Hypermetabolism

  • Malignant Neoplasm

    However, some hypermetabolic conditions may mimic malignant neoplasms.[]

  • Streptococcal Infection

    […] minor beneficial effects on his involuntary movements. 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/ computer tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) demonstrated pronounced hypermetabolism[]

  • Patulous Eustachian Tube

    A positron-emission tomography-CT scan demonstrated a 2-cm hypermetabolic parapharyngeal mass, initially interpreted as a skull base tumor.[]

  • Drug-induced Fever

    Drug-induced fever is a symptom of an adverse drug reaction wherein the administration of drugs intended to help a patient causes a hypermetabolic state resulting in fever[]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    Positron emission tomography (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose detected two intensely hypermetabolic lesions limited to both adrenal glands.[]

  • Thyroid Crisis

    Similarly, severe burn injury also has a hypermetabolic response as part of its presentation.[] Circulatory collapse and dehydration under excessive hypermetabolic state presumably suppressed the source of energy and oxygen for muscle cells, leading to cellular damage[] Thyroid crisis, also known as thyroid storm, is a rare complication of thyrotoxicosis that results in a hypermetabolic and hyperadrenergic state.[]

  • Leukemia

    Other presenting symptoms and signs are usually nonspecific (eg, pallor, fatigue, fever, malaise, weight loss, tachycardia, chest pain) and are attributable to anemia and a hypermetabolic[]

  • Malignant Hyperthermia

    In some circumstances the delayed onset of the hypermetabolic state may hinder timely recognition and treatment.[] Malignant hyperthermia (MH) is a pharmacogenetic disorder of skeletal muscle that presents as a hypermetabolic response to potent volatile anesthetic gases such as halothane[] Malignant hyperthermia is a rare but well-described hypermetabolic disorder of skeletal muscle that can be potentially fatal if untreated.[]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    To our knowledge, this is the first case reported in the literature presenting with simultaneous hypermetabolic lesions in the prostate and lung.[]

  • Hodgkin's Disease

    GA lesions showed hypermetabolic images on positron emission tomography, an interesting finding of unknown significance.[] […] cycles of chemotherapy. 18F Fluro -de-oxy Glucose (FDG) PET / CT in this case helped in establishing a primary hepatic lymphoma by demonstrating the absence of pathologically hypermetabolic[] Hypermetabolic tumor regions were segmented semiautomatically and the metabolic tumor volume (MTV), mean standardized uptake value (SUV mean), maximum SUV (SUV max) and integrated[]
